At Dr Smile Family Dentists, we know that dental emergencies need prompt and efficient care. We offer quality dental emergency care that’s needed for severe dental pain, swelling, and trauma such as falls or accidents that can cause teeth to be chipped, fractured or broken. Good early management of such dental emergencies goes a long way in preventing complications later. If you or any family member is experiencing pain or trauma, contact us immediately.
Extracting teeth is viewed as a last resort in modern dentistry and usually only occurs as a result of chronic disease or trauma. One clear exception to this is the removal of our wisdom teeth, known dentally as our third molar. Biologically these teeth were designed as replacements for our back teeth as they became worn based on the abrassive diet of "The Cave Man". Today they form an unnecessary and often problematic part of our dentition.
